This is a repeat Teacher Tip video, but a good one if you are teaching online over the next few weeks. In the activity DEBATE: Should College Students Have Credit Cards? students conduct research on the pros and cons of credit usage and also learn how to effectively form a debate. Amanda Volz provides some tips and a variety of implementation ideas for how you can use this activity in your classroom including using Flipgrid as a way for students to present their research.
